Holy Ground

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.
-Elizabeth Barrett Browning
***How and where did you experience Heaven today?

I experienced Heaven when I looked out my bedroom window, as the full snowflakes floated to cover the large cedar tree, as well as the empty field behind us.

I experienced Heaven today when my friend on the phone prayed with me for my children and hers as Mother's who love their family and need the Almighty's touch upon their individual life and marriages.

Blessings,

Janna- I can just imagine those big snowflakes. What a joy!!

Barbara said...

Lori J- There is nothing more beautiful and selfless than a mother's prayer.

I experienced Heaven when I was hanging up my clothes and looked up into the sky with whispy white clouds gently moving across the deep blue sky. I thought I might be able to see farther up into the sky today than in the past.

Pat- What a lovely experience!

Today when I left the store and shopping and was feeling sorry for myself because I didn't have enough money for what I wanted to purchase, went to the car, put my stuff in and walked back to the car and there was an older lady struggling with her empty cart because she could hardly walk. I took it for her and put it in the empty cart holder and the Lord reminded me.....I could walk just fine and to pick my chin up and put a smile on my face.

Barbara said...

Lea- That's a wonderful attitude. I'm sure the Lord was smiling with joy!

My heavenly experience came today in the form of a minor fender bender of all things. I'll be posting on it soon. :)

Barbara said...

Angie- I can't wait to hear the story!!

Heaven is the morning bear hug and I love you from my husband. What a daily blessing!

Barbara said...

Donna- God's love can be felt thru the love of our family. Yes, a blessing, indeed.
